. it is a different tlesh hold than what the obama administration has laid out when you look carefully at what the president said at the general assembly, the most recent remarks on iran's nuclear program, he said the united states will not allow iran to have a nuclear bomb. i am paraphrasing to a certain degree. the word capability was not there. you did hear it from the israeli prime minister and today you're hearing it once again from mitt romney. mitt romney has been vague. he has gone back and forth on the issue of capability and sometimes he says it and sometimes he doesn't. today he is very cat goral in saying in a romney administration iran would not be able to have that capability of building a nuclear bomb which is significantly different than the threshold laid out by the president. >> and let's talk about syria which has been somewhat of a thorn in the side of this current sitting american president, and mr. romney, governor romney's view of syria, there was something in these prepared remarks that we excerpted that stood out to me and i want to get your take on it. he said or he w
that he has tried to make about the red line and backing the obama administration and the u.s. government into a corner to make a particular statement about these red lines. he has not been successful at that even with his speech at the u.n. i raise that because the jewish vote does matter. let's be frank about it. more important or as important, and jewish money matters. the biggest giver in this campaign on the other side is they do, -- is a jew. the issue of israel is important as is always in u.s. foreign policy. how do you think that plays out in the election, particularly given that netanyahu has not been successful, but a significant number of jews who feel that obama has been disrespectful to netanyahu? >> let me back up on two quick points. i think it is important to distinguish the jewish money from pro-use real money. there are huge numbers of jews like me in the jewish community who have very diverse views on israel, who do not support u.s. military aid to israel, who don't support giving israel the kind of diplomatic support at the united nations, providing the kind of impuni
, situation here where the obama administration blew it. and are actually accusing the administration of misleading the public. the obama administration denies that. hindsight is 20/20. but there's no doubt about it. there were requests they didn't feel safe. they needed more. let's face it. the facts play out that they had, very good suspicion and they were right. >> and this was not a good time for the hearing, for the obama administration. >> no. >> especially 20-something days away from the election. >> got that right. >> tough. >>> talk about lawyers and jerry sandusky, they say they will fight the attempts to take away his penn state pension. the retirement pension told sandusky will no longer receive $4,900 monthly check. in light of his conviction on child sex charges. sandusky received a total of $900,000 in pension payments between his retirement in 1999 and last month. >> wow. >> that's -- that's a sweet retirement deal. >> $900,000. >> that's a lot. wow. >> apparently the decision rests on analysis that he remained a de facto employee of penn state in the years after his 1
head-to-headen a debate the obama administration hopes can turn the tide for its campaign. >>> also this half-hour we'll introduce you to a woman who the sky is the limit. martha raddatz, and the first female fighter pilot. how she paved the way for a new generation. >> one of my favorites of the day. so cool. >> later from newspapers to television now to the big screen. charlie brown and snoopy plan to take hollywood by storm. how the new movie will be a family affair for the cartoon's creator the i certainly am going to watch that. remember. ♪ snoopy love it. first there is breaking news from colorado this morning. a grim discovery in the desperate search for a girl who has been missing since last friday. >> abc's clayton sandel has been following the jessica ridgeway case from the start, the latest from westminster, colorado. >> reporter: late wednesday night police announced a bed had been found in a park in arvada. they will not confirm it is 10-year-old jessica ridgeway. multiple police sources tell abc news they believe it is the girl's body. but positive identification may
in this election. we can elect somebody who does not have a plan, will be an echo of the obama administration. or somebody who will continue to be an independent voice for arizona. i would appreciate your vote. >> thank you for your opening statements. let's fine tune things a little bit here. why you and not him? >> happy to have the opportunity. no, my life has been one that has been best exemplified by the infrastructure of opportunity that this nation has. i am a high-school dropout from an immigrant family. i have prospered because of this great infrastructure of opportunity in our nation. i have been able to serve my country as a physician, a police officer, as a professor, as a teacher. and doing all of those things has allowed me to appreciate how great this nation is. what i want to do is make sure we can preserve this infrastructure of opportunity so every kid can get that american dream. >> what you and not him? >> that is exactly it. that opportunity will not exist unless we get a hold of this $16 trillion debt. that is why we have to have somebody who has a record, who is willing
the obama administration. so, what could a romney presidency do differently than what we have witnessed? >> well, you know, there's a good argument that much of this will be political rhetoric. it clearly no one thinks that employing convention power against iranian nuclear facilities is a way to move forward. nobody want it is israelis to attack with conventional military power at this time. and by the way, i think the iranians are going nuclear regardless of the stranglehold on them. governor romney's in a tenuous position. he won't want to provide a clear alternative. the american people won't vote for a war. >> all right. so one thing i think a lot of people will remember if they've seen the now infamous secret tape. 47% remark in florida where mitt romney did discuss the current situation in the middle east and the wording he used in reference to that saying, we just have to live with certain things that are going on there. the cycle of violence that we have been seeing. now calling for beginning anew. kind of an etch-a-sketch moment for the foreign policy initiative, the leadershi

, on the anniversary of the cuban missile crisis. >> two counter-terrorism experts said the obama administration use of ground strikes may be undermining security objectives in places like yemen and pakistan. peter bird and and christopher swift discuss the move from partitive killings to signature strikes, which target groups ahead of men associated with terrorists. according to research, and grown strikes in pakistan have increased from one every 40 days during the bush administration to one every four days. this is from the center for national policy. >> good afternoon. my name is gregory aftandilian. i am a senior fellow for the middle east here at the center for national policy. on behalf of our chairman, and our president, i want to welcome all of you here today. i also want to welcome c-span for covering this event. the event is titled, "death from above." as many of you are aware, drone attacks started under the bush administration but have been accelerated under the obama administration. they seem to be the main weapon of the united states against al qaeda and its affiliates in pakistan. we
that is abandoned by the obama administration and it is important to support our allies like israel and support the opposition in syria and obviously touch on the libyan issue with regard to the benghazi attack and the death of four americans including the death of ambassador stevens and our role in the middle east, not being an observer but an active participant . making foreign policy work for the united states. >> steve: you will see the next debate on foreign policy. since the debate debacle for the president they blamed everybody. blaming mitt romney for being a liar . blamed jimm lehrer and even the guy who prepared the president. john kerry. he wants to be secretary of state and so he didn't get in the president's face. there is an item apparently the obama staff knew 10 minutes before it was all over on wednesday night that it was a debacle and convened a conference call and decided to go after romney and hit on big bird and all new ads to have a come back. >> gretchen: apparently the adpeople stayed up all might to have an adto go right away. when president obama was in hollywood . he

the obama administration initially seemed to downplay the attack that cost the lives of four americans, including ambassador chris stevens, are not going away. secretary of state hillary clinton today for the first time faced reporters on the issue. >> to this day, we do not have a complete picture. we do not have all the answers. no one in this administration has ever claimed otherwise. >> reporter: and the white house continued to point out that many of the same republicans who are questioning the administration's refusal to send more security agents to libya are the same republicans who tried to cut funding for diplomatic security. diane? >> all right, jake. and i'll see you this sunday, we'll all be watching, as martha raddatz also joins you there to weigh in on the big debate. along with vice president biden's son, beau, and governor mitt romney's debate sparring partner, senator rob portman, "this week" this sunday. >>> overseas now, and the latest on the heroic young girl, shot by the taliban because she made a public appeal for girls to get to go to school. today, across pakist
correspondent is calling out the obama administration for lying to american people. it's big and important. laura logan in her own words. "i can't stand that there is a major lie propagated. there is a narrative coming out of washington for the last two years. poor, moderate, gentleer, kinder taliban. it's just nonsense. president obama turns blind eye to reality that the bad guys that want to kill our children are out there lur lurking. while obama takes another victory lap last night. >> today, al-qaeda is on appeal and bin laden is no more. >> eric: let's start with laura logan. big news. big journalist. if anyone should know where al-qaeda is, and in the sate of al-qaeda would be her. >> andrea: laura logan was assaulted in egypt. amazing she has the courage to go back and report. if anyone knows her stuff about the region, she does. for her to call out the president on not just -- she is not just saying he is taking a victory lap. she is accusing the administration of lying. we have seen them not just publicly announce withdrawal from iraq as naive, but he is spiking the football. we
. they're asking the obama administration to take down the ad. >> steve: they're taking fire because mitt romney brought it up in the debate where if -- he said i love you jim, but i'm not big on funding pbs and things like that. and a lot of the country feels like why do we actually contribute millions and millions of dollars to public broadcasting? well, michelle obama was in virginia outside of washington, d.c. yesterday. she is pro-big bird. mitt romney was talking yesterday he is against government subsidizing public broadcasting. here they both are. >> we believe in keeping our priorities straight. we all know good ask well that cutting sesame street is no way to balance the budget. >> food stamps, when the president took office, 32 million people on food stamps. now there are 47 million people on food stamps. these are tough times with real serious issues. so you have to scratch your head when the president spends the last week talking about saving big bird. [ laughter ] >> steve: he's right. >> brian: what an insult to the american people to think we're that stupid, we need a chil
and a former senior obama administration advisor to treasury secretary tim geithner. this is about an hour. >> good morning. i'm the vice president and codirector of the economic studies program here at brookings. i'm pleased to introduce one of the newest governors of the federal reserve board, jeremy stein. governor stein swore the oath of office on may 30th, 2012, to fill an unexpired term ending january 31st, 2018. this is not his first tour of duty in washington. in 2009 governor stein served in the obama administration as a senior advisor to the secretary of the treasury and on the staff of the national economic council. prior to his appointment to the fed board governor stein was a stafford professor of economics at harvard university where he taught courses in finance and undergraduate and ph.d programs. previously governor stein taught finance at mit's sloane school of management. before that he was an assistant professor at the harvard business school. governor stein has a distinguished research record. he has covered many topics including behaviorial finance and stock market eff
be a difference with the bush administration. now, barack obama had said that all we're doing in afghanistan is air-raiding villages and killing civilians. and such a reckless, reckless comment and untrue comment, again, hurts our cause. that's not what we're doing there. we're fighting terrorists, and we're securing democracy, and we're building schools for children there so that there is opportunity in that country, also. there will be a big difference there, and we will win in -- in afghanistan, also. >> senator, you may talk about nuclear use, if you'd like, and also about afghanistan. >> i'll talk about both. with afghanistan, facts matter, gwen. the fact is that our commanding general in afghanistan said today that a surge -- the surge principles used in iraq will not -- well, let me say this again now -- our commanding general in afghanistan said the surge principle in iraq will not work in afghanistan, not joe biden, our commanding general in afghanistan. he said we need more troops. we need government-building. we need to spend more money on the infrastructure in afghanistan. look,
.s. catholic of bishops to the obama administration rules and the affordable health care act for contraceptive coverage in such cases. parenthetically, and this is the relevant in the room, both catholics disagree with the school teaching on contraception. >> i am one of those catholics. [laughter] in this case the institution i believe still has religious freedom, but other parties are involved and they have their freedoms, too, their religious freedom, in addition these catholic institutions receive government funding for their operations. so, you have here attention of these different conflicting rights going on here. the rules proposed by the obama administration first say that the church institutions had to provide contraceptive health care insurance for their and please. not only the u.s. catholic bishops, but many other catholics and many other proponents and religious liberty oppose the obama administration and regulation they then propose a compromise that such employees would be covered for contraception but the institution wouldn't have to pay for it. they call that a brilliant solu
looks of the obama administration's use of drone strikes in pakistan and yemen. the west virginia's governors' debate. charles schumer talks about tax policy. >> it is the 15th anniversary of c-span radio. here to talk with us about this is nancy. she has been with c-span radio since the beginning. >> c-span was created on october 9, 1997, by the cable television industry. it is another way to access c- span's public affairs programming. we bring you our commitment to live coverage of the house and senate proceedings, including the house lame-duck session that will be happening after the elections. they will be working on the fiscal cliff. also, we bring you public policy events, including congressional hearings. looking into the attack on the consulate in benghazi, libya. all of our events are -- former without interruption or commentary. that is some of what we do on c- span radio. >> has the mission ground in 15 years? >> -- a ground in 15 years? >> it has changed since technology has changed. c-span brady was available in the washington, d.c. area. shortly thereafter, we becam
of the obama administration officials to condemn the attack and mourn the death of ambassador christopher stevens and three other americans but as the state department has weathered the republican-led criticism of the warning signs before the september 11th attack, clinton has been invisible. clinton will not appear the oversight hearing on the libya attack where they've said they will question the state department security preparations and the administration's account of the attack. the state department plans to the interest in their career with other officials. ahead of the hearing they provided new details about the attack or asserting that there had been no way to predict or prevent the same assault. and as we read in the "the washington times" earlier, the report that the state department according to them took away any claims that this attack was due to the protest about that video to read that is the front page of the "the washington times" this morning. they also in case you are interested include a brief chronology of the aftermath of the attack on the u.s. consulate in libya if
, the bush administration and obama administration, we always knew that u.s. consulates and embassies are absolutely prime targets for terrorist attacks. we've seen this before in the bush administration, we had attacks in the consulate in karachi and pakistan in saudi arabia, in jeddah, in syria, and elsewhere throughout the region. so this is not entirely new. we know the threat is there. i think what we've seen in libya is, obviously a government which still had a real challenge in using its own forces to protect the limited u.s. presence and very legitimate questions now about the degree of security that was there at the embassy. from what i understand, there still was no long specific actual intelligence about this attack, but it's quite clear there was a threat in libya generally, a specific threat that we'd seen over the previous couple months in benghazi, and now obviously the congress and the executive branch have to look hard and see should that security have been heightened, but as you noted, the diplomatic security within the state department has long been a target of budg
in 43 months. the obama administration had projected it would fall below 6% after the close to $1 trillion in stimulus money. so will both of you level with the american people. can you get unemployment to under 6% and how long will it take? i don't know how long it will take. we can and will get it under 6%. take a look at the facts. let's look at where we were when we came to office. the economy was in free fall. we had great recession hit. 9 million people lost their job. 1.7 -- $1.6 trillion in wealth lost in equity in your homes, in retire accounts from the middle class. we knew we had after the middle class. we immediately rescued general motors. we made sure we cut taxes for the middle class. in addition to that, when that occurred, what did romney do? romney said, no, let detroit go bankrupt. we helped people refinance their homes. governor romney said, no, let foreclosures hit the bottom. but it should be surprising for a guy who says 47% of the american people are unwilling to take responsibility for their own lives. bart friend in a speech said 30% of the american peopl
, in a obama/biden administration, there will be absolutely no distinction from a constitutional standpoint or a legal standpoint between a same-sex and a heterosexual couple. the fact of the matter is that under the constitution we should be granted same-sex couples should be able to have visitation rights in the hospital, joint ownership of property, life insurance policies, etc. that's only fair. it's what the constitution calls for. and so we do support, we do support making sure that committed couples in the same-sex marriage are guaranteed the same constitutional benefits as it relates to their property rights, to the rights of visitation, their rights of insurance, their rights of ownership as heterosexual couples do. >> moderator: governor, would you support expanding that beyond alaska to the rest of the nation? palin: not if it goes closer and closer towards redefining the traditional definition of marriage between one man and one woman and, unfortunately, that's sometimes where those steps lead. i also want to clarify, if there's any kind of suggestion from my answer that i would
made by obama administration. it was a judge who reversed the position who changed the future of wolf recovery. it changed the goal posts. what we need ultimately need we needed an endangered reform act. it's not working for the betterment of the endangered species and there's nobody in this room, nobody in montana that wanted to endangered species. that want species to disappear from the face of the earth. the point is we need certainty. we need to work together to delist it. turn management back over to the state. the solution and compromise came up was stopgap. it should be delisted. it still allows the u.s. fish and wildlife service to have an influence. the management should be sent back to the state as we have proposed in my legislation. >> the problem is, legislation didn't make it out of committee. still setting there. we got a bill we can get bipartisan support for and get passed. it was done after talking with sportsmen and livestock producers and conservationist across the board. it was the right thing to do for the wolves. it was the right thing to do for montana. we got i
in the syrian conflict than the obama administration has reflected. governor mitt romney's speech today is almost certain to raise the point whether it will raise it in a way that captures the public imagination and strikes them as sensible remains to be seen. but i would say that this survey and governor mitt romney's speech plus development on the ground may be the entering wedge for what i personally regard as an overdue public debate about what the united states ought to be doing in the syrian conflict. >> thank you so much. let me now turn to the apparent polarizations of the u.s. public opinion on foreign policy issues. perhaps not surprising for weeks out from the campaign in which the foreign policy has surprisingly begun to play a significant role in the campaign but what we see in the arab world is with the emergence of more space politics, polarization as well. a around a number of issues that relate to the relationship, the interaction between the states at transitions and the united states in the west more broadly. the result that americans seem to understand without the is
administration. now, barack obama had said that all we're doing in afghanistan is air-raiding villages and killing civilians. and such a reckless, reckless comment and untrue comment, again, hurts our cause. that's not what we're doing there. we're fighting terrorists, and we're securing democracy, and we're building schools for children there so that there is opportunity in that country, also. there will be a big difference there, and we will win in -- in afghanistan, also. >> senator, you may talk about nuclear use, if you'd like, and also about afghanistan. >> i'll talk about both. with afghanistan, facts matter, gwen. the fact is that our commanding general in afghanistan said today that a surge -- the surge principles used in iraq will not -- well, let me say this again now -- our commanding general in afghanistan said the surge principle in iraq will not work in afghanistan, not joe biden, our commanding general in afghanistan. he said we need more troops. we need government-building. we need to spend more money on the infrastructure in afghanistan. look, we have spent more money
call with president obama, his first words were you're welcome. how is the administration dealing with this? do they see it the same way? >> reporter: he went into this happy to be able to defend the honor of the white house and this administration and will probably come out of it feeling he did that. and the administration and the campaign were thrild with the performance last night for the very reasons ron outlined. especially because biden forcefully made the case that the democratic base wanted to hear about the president's economic message. essentially, you know, many democrats were so disappointed after the president's performance last week. somebody needed to come out and reenergize them. and so that's what the vice president was aabble to do. now it's up to the president to see if he can pick it up from there next week, don. >> don, real quick, still the hole in the donut, like obama last week, as strong as biden was, almost nothing about what a second term, second obama term would bring, particularly on the economy. big missing piece. tough on the republican choice, tough
at -- predicate for a stronger american stance regarding the syrian conflict than the obama of administration has adopted. governor romney's speech today is almost certain to raise this point. whether it will raise it in a way that captures public and managing agent and strikes them as sensible remains to be seen, but i would say that this survey and governor romney's speech, plus, the elements of the ground, they be entering what i would personally regard as an overdue public debate about what the united states ought to be doing regarding the syrian conflict. >> thank you so much. let me turn to hisham, and bill talked about the polarization of american public opinion on for some -- on foreign policy. not surprising where foreign policy has begun to play a significant role in both the campaigns, but what we see in the arab world is with the emergence of more democratic politics, polarization as well. around a number of issues that relate to the relationship, interaction between these arab states in transition and united states and the west more broadly. the poor results that americans seem to un
this morning with priorities u.s.a. action, a superpac that supports president obama. also a former white house press secretary for the administration. hammering behind me, i apologize in case it drowns me out as we're talking. twitter was on fire where people would think absolutely, positively it was paul ryan who won or absolutely, positively it was joe biden who won. ultimately, though, this was about playing to the middle. when it comes to that realist realistically, who do you think had the advantage there? >> i think if you look at the polls, your poll said that that debate was tied. cbs said that vice president biden did remarkably better than congressman ryan did. but i think if you just look at the two -- if you look at the vice president, the vice presidential nominee on the republican side, the facts don't stack up for the republican side. and i think that joe biden did an excellent job of point iing t where the math didn't add up, where his inexperience on foreign policy showed ryan to be unprepared and a little off kilter. and i think that joe biden, overall, did a much better job
